Why do we talk so much about all that “innovation stuff”? A window into the CPA’s Epp Peace Incubator Program

Ashoka U Exchange

Earlier this month, Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement (CPA) staff members Paul Heidebrecht and Michelle Jackett participated in the 2017 Ashoka U Exchange. Dedicated to transforming higher education into a tool for social innovation, this annual conference brought together over 700 attendees from around the world, including representatives from more than 10 Canadian universities. The CPA’s own Epp Peace Incubator Program is what brought Paul and Michelle to Miami for the conference, and is what drives their ongoing engagement in the growing field of social innovation.
